What is an embedded system?

Firmware First

  • Firmware is software that makes the hardware work
    If the hardware changes, the firmware has to change
  • NOT an FPGA program

Embedded Systems

  • Software and systems that have a specific, predetermined purpose.
  • NOT a generic computer, or cell phone
    BUT, a computer or phone is built from embedded systems.
